I gave a 30 day notice on 4/27/17 on 5/18/17 I handed in the keys. I requested a refund on the days 5/27/2017 to 5/31/2017. i was told it didnt work that way?? I also asked since they are tearing out the flooring and updating all apartments can i have the refund for 5/19/2017 to 5/31/2017. she said no since it cant be rented. It is not my fault it cannot be rented its due to the upgrades it cant be rented. If they are ripping out the floors and I cannot live there then i believe i shpild be able to get my security deposit of $350.00 and the rent difference. Am I wrong?JA: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?Customer: Modesto CaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: not that i can think of

We filed a Copyright Innfregemnt case in the 11th Judicial

Good afternoon,We filed a Copyright Innfregemnt case in the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County.So far the Judge is entertaining this case, however, since the copyright law is under the Act of Congress such as patents, copyrights and trademarks does the jurisdiction for this action fals under the United States Courts under 28 U.S. Code 1338.??Our questions would be:-does the 11th Judicial Circuit have the jurisdiction over this case?? so far the judge is entertining this case- can the Judge in the 11th Judicial Circuit rule in the Motion for Summary Judgment if filed??- if not, we would need a consultation on how to safely move this case from 11th Judicial Circuit to the Federal Court if possible.-By reading the rules, only the defendants are moving cases from State to Federal Courts.- if we can not move the case from 11th Judicial Circuit, should we close this case in this court and open new in the federal.??

I have been subpoenaed to be a witness in a civil action

I have been subpoenaed to be a witness in a civil action that i am named also as a defendent. I just finished a bankruptcy including them as a creditor. This was a project that I performed time and material on which i was never paid ( $ 70,000 ) dollars. This destroyed my life. They wish to have me bring documents and things which I no longer have, i lost everything buisness and personal. I avoiden a depositon already due to my being over 500 miles away and they were listed in my bankruptcy. This was through Pellagreno and Associates. I am a health care provider through IHSS for my ailing mother who is diabetic and just beat cancer. She does not have the ability to travel. I am being asked to be a witness for my creditor against the designer and Prime contractor.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the subpoena was issued in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: My bankruptcy was filed and i have been to court in ReddingJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I guess just that this is now an undue hardship that they caused, and the reason for my bankruptcy. They have a judgment against me with no dollar amount which Pellagreno an associates said was a good thing and included in my bankruptcy. I fear a conflict due to my banruptcy to be a witnesd. That and distance to travel, lack of car and finances due to them, lack of documentation to provide due to them, and an ailing mother
